I'm really hoping that front license plate mount comes in the trunk, just like all my previous cars!

It looks like it is part of the bumper. Don't think it can be removed

I've never had a red car, but I think it's going to look great in Melbourne Red with M Sport Package.

Man, that is nice!

I wish the 2.0 Msport also had a dual exhaust. It would make it more of a "M sport" with dual exhausts. The non Msport can have the single/double outlets, but for the M spot there should have been dual pipes.

Overall the M sport is a sweet look. I wonder how well the M sport suspension will do on our daily crappy roads? My last 2 BMW's have had the optional "sport pkg suspension" and the ride and handling has been great on Chicago area roads.
The M sport suspension is claimed to be a bit more sporty aggressive, so it'll be interesting to drive it on daily roads.

I still don't like the screen just sitting there on top of the dash. It just looks like an add on and after thought.

This video showed something I had not noticed before. There are 2 separate crease lines, one starts at hood top and runs to about the mid point on the rear door, and the other starts a bit after the front wheel arch and runs to the back.
I'm not sold on it yet. It looks odd on the first viewing. Hopefully it will look better in person, but I've seen this on other cars and I don't like it.
I prefer a single hard crease from front to rear with an unbroken line.
This 2 crease line look doesn't convey unity as it's a broken line and makes my eyes "jump" while following it front to back or back to front.
Perhaps I'll get used to it, I'm sure I will.

Also, as others have said, the hood creases are too much and too busy. The one on the top of the hood, nearest the windshield, is too tall and distracting.

Overall, the M sport is a very very sweet piece. NICE!

PS

The BMW guy said that they choose wider tires to fill in the arches so that the tires are even with the line. He said they were widened by 40mm's.
That's about 1.5 inches.
What are the tires widths on the new 3?
I think they are 235mm? So that would put the rears at 265mm?
What about the front?

Isn't there a regular "sport pkg" that has increased tire width above the standard size?
If so, what are those sizes?

Not wider tires but wider track. F30 is close to same width as E90 but track is wider.

With the 335i with any Line, you have an option to get 19" wheels with staggered setup 225/40 & 255/35 rear. Otherwise you get 225/45-18" all around for all 328i/335i US models with any Line.

Thanks for the info.
I just watched the video again, and I missed that the first time.
He does say a "wider track" by 40mm.

But, does he mean that the new 3 has a 40mm wider track, or that the M sport has a 40mm wider track?
I think he means that the new 3 series has a wider track than the previous model.
It had me confused because he's talking about the M sport, so I thought he meant the M sport has a wider track.
Does it?

I posted a new thread on tire sizes as I think that discussion would take away from this thread.

Track is wider on ALL models, not just M-Sport.

Could someone create a rendering of a 328i M-Sport WAGON in the different colors? Estoril Blue, Mineral Gray, etc...

Looking at an ED in 2013!

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Unfortunately, I am not sure you will be able to buy a 3 wagon in the US, it looks like they are dropping all wagons for the US market for forcing us to go into the weird "GT" models...
